PNM urges Government to ban LTTE
COLOMBO: The Patriotic National Movement (PNM) in a letter to
President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday urged the Government to proscribe
the LTTE and withdraw from the unlawful Cease-fire Agreement to ensure
the country's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
The letter signed by Movement's National Operational Council
President Dr. Gunadasa Amarasekera demanded to remove the Nordic Peace
Brokers, reject the biased proposals made by the academics of the All
Party Political Committee which advocates division of Sri Lanka into
pieces on ethnic basis and appoint two separate Governors for the
distinct provinces of the Northern Province and the Eastern Province.
The letter enumerating the spate of LTTE aggressions in quick
succession during the recent few days, in violation of the nominal
Ceasefire Agreement said, the peace loving people in this country
representing numerous ethnic groups will never tolerate the LTTE's sole
aim of creating a separate state of "Eelam".
The letter urged the Government to launch a pragmatic programme
before February 22 next year, determined to eradicate terrorism from the
very root and defeat LTTE separatism for ever.
